Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y

Samsung's Galaxy Gear television advertisement bears a resemblance to the original iPhone advertisement.

This made me smile, though:

There is just no shame - or original ideas - in this company at all.

Yeah! Except for display technology. Oh, and except for microprocessor design. And, of course, they are a driving force in memory chip design. Well, yeah, except for all those things from which virtually every computer product today benefits - Apple or otherwise - Samsung has absolutely no innovative ideas at all. What have the Romans done for us, indeed.

I don't care about Samsung any more than I care about other companies, but to shove the company's contributions to technology aside just because you lack the capacity to grasp the kind of more bare metal innovation they do just makes you look like an idiot.

"OP Editor: Thanks flimbus,

It seems to me that Apple voluntarily tried to do the right thing and pay Marclay, and he refused. (His own lawyer told him that Apple doesn’t owe him anything).

So did Samsung approach Apple or Marclay to license the concept? I think not."

I'm pretty sure that "ask for permission and when denied steal the concept anyway" isn't the right thing.
